In case of emergency, the School's procedure will be to contact the parent at home or work. If unable to reach either parent, we will contact the next emergency contact listed. I understand that part of The Birch School experience involves activities, group arrangements and interactions that may be new to my child. These things come with certain risks and uncertainties beyond what my child may be used to dealing with at home. I am aware of these risks and I am assuming them on behalf of my child. I realize that no environment is risk free and so I have instructed my child on the importance of abiding by the school’s rules. My child and I both agree that he or she is familiar or will become familiar with these rules and will obey them.I give permission, in case of injury, for Birch School Personnel when the need for treatment is immediate and efforts to contact me are unsuccessful. I authorize the Director (or the Director's Substitute at their direction) to take my child to the hospital for treatment if necessary. I authorize the Director to discuss any medical conditions with school staff, in his or her own discretion, it is in the best interest of the child.I/We acknowledge, understand and agree that The Birch School, Birch School Board of Trustees, and the respective trustees, directors, administrators and employees of these entities shall not be responsible or liable for any damage, including personal injuries to the student and property loss of any type whatsoever, unless such damage is the direct result of a willful or grossly negligent act of one of those entities or these trustees, directors, administrators and employees.I understand that TBS cannot be held legally responsible for any injuries that may occur on the premises at 9 Vance Road, Rock Tavern, NY outside of school hours.
